Enquirer Apologizes to Spears for Divorce Stories



The National Enquirer apologized to Britney Spears for erroneous pieces.

The National Enquirer apologized to Britney Spears in its British edition Tuesday July 18th for publishing two stories indicating that her marriage to Kevin Federline was over.

The articles, published June 5 and June 12 under the headlines, "Britney marriage is over!" and "Britney and Kevin: And now their divorce!", cited unidentified "friends" of the couple.

And now after Spears' U.K. legal team objected to the claims on her behalf, the Enquirer issued a retraction and apology, stating: "Contrary to what our articles might have suggested, we now accept that their marriage is not over and they are not getting divorced. These allegations are untrue and we now accept Britney's position that the statements are without foundation. We apologize for any distress caused."

The apology ran in the Enquirer's British edition in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales on Tuesday and was due to run in the Republic of Ireland edition on Wednesday.
